The Kosciuszko Craft Beer Festival – January 7th 2017

A one day event held at the Thredbo Alpine Hotel in the small town of Thredbo in the heart of the Snowy Mountains, the Kosciuszko Craft Beer Festival will be our first festival of 2017 and it is one that we are rather excited about. Why? Well this one is a little more of a festival for the beer brewer than the beer drinker. Don’t get us wrong those who enjoy beer will definitely enjoy it too! As it will provide and excellent view into the beer brewing world for anyone who may be interested.

It’s not too far from Tumut -only around 3 hours- and being nestled in the mountains it will be the perfect occasion for people to combine a love of beer and the outdoors. It’s free family event for people of all ages taking place from 12pm to 5pm, with: a BBQ, live music, beer brewing demonstrations and free beer tastings (yes free beer!) from some of Australia’s exciting up and coming craft brewers. There’s also a home brew competition for all those avid home brewers out there who want to join in the fun!Tumut

In the evening there is a Beer, Ales and Tales Degustation Dinner, this is $65 per head and features six beers from the festival paired perfectly with five tasty dishes crafted by the Executive Chef of the Thredbo Alpine Hotel. Now we can’t tell you if one of our beers will feature in the dinner -because we honestly just don’t know yet- but it will definitely be a memorable evening worth attending.

So if you’re from the area and want to taste our excellent beer -and other excellent beers too- or are reading this from afar and want to combine your love of tasting beer with your desire to be outdoors then check out the website for the festival here!

We hope to see you there!

Food and drinks around the world are gaining stickers, labels and little stamps for all sorts of things nowadays; whether it be health reasons, not tested on animals or one of many other reasons. Not all of these things are important or can lead to a benefit for the product, humanity or the planet, however, there are three terms that get associated with coffee that we think are important and worth understanding. These are: Fair Trade, Organic and Rainforest Alliance Certified. Here we’re going to give each of these a little break down so that when you next see them you know why they’re important to your cup of coffee and the world near and far.

Stylin' Brews: Red Ale

The Profile

A red ale is a form of pale ale that is categorised by its colour. There’s still debate around the fact of whether or not a red ale is really its own class of ale or whether or not it falls under the umbrella of English bitter. A red ale is categorised by a slight sweetness and tea-like flavours. It has a light hop and toasted malt flavours, making it a well-balanced beer. It is made with a high proportion of pale malts and often contains caramel colouring to give it its signature red hue. It is often that red ales will have a dry finish. These beers are very easy drinking, as our very own Tim Martin will tell you from personal experience!
